Paper Crafts – Vintage Pieces for Collage/Altered Art – Autumn Pieces

I think autumn is God’s way of combining the best of all seasons –
the browns/grays of winter, pale notes of spring, the bright myriad
hues of summer – tied together and bursting with color, sights, sounds and textures.

Be happy in this time, go for a walk, listen to the crunching of leaves underfoot; go apple picking or nutting; roast marshmallows and listen to the crickets. Oh, and count the different birds as they arrive safely home after a summers excursion to regions beyond.

Tomorrow is not promised, so live and love today. How wonderful, the fall, thank you, Lord!

I Love Fall

I love fall!
Fall is exciting.
It’s apples and cider.
It’s an airborne spider.
It’s pumpkins in bins.
It’s burrs on dog’s chins.
It’s wind blowing leaves.
It’s chilly red knees.
It’s nuts on the ground.
It’s a crisp dry sound.
It’s green leaves turning
And the smell of them burning.
It’s clouds in the sky.
It’s fall. That’s why…
I love fall.

Autumn Wind

When autumn wind goes running
It does some magic things.
It gives the shadows dancing shoes,
It gives the bright leaves wings –

When autumn wind goes running.
It curls the bonfire’s tail of smoke
And shares a little whispered joke
With cornstalks who delight to prattle,
It turns a seed pod into a rattle –
When autumn wind goes running.

Autumn Bird Song

Over the housetops,
Over the trees,
Winging their way
In a stiff fall breeze.

A flock of birds
Is flying along
Southward, for winter,
Singing a song.

Singing a song
They all like to sing,
“We’ll see you again
When it’s spring, spring, spring.”

“How beautifully leaves grow old.
How full of light and color are their last days.”

~ John Burroughs ~

“Gratitude is an offering precious in the sight of God,
and it is one that the poorest of us can make
and be not poorer but richer for having made it.”

~ A.W. Tozer ~
